After a seemingly mundane tweet Thursday about morning rain, Austin ISD’s Twitter mentions began filling up with tweets, memes and gifs from locals wondering why the district hadn’t delayed classes.

School districts are much more likely to either cancel or delay classes due to flooding. But heavy rain and concerns about potential flooding have prompted districts to modify their schedules before, such as a heavy rain event during mid-April.
